    They also say it helps people as they age with memory problems.

    break's our wings
    we will continue to
    fly...usually on a
    broomstick.
    We're flexible like that.

    Thank you for sharing this article. I work at a homeless shelter for the chronically homeless, currently abusing drugs, and violent felons. I am going to try to incorporate some creating into the work I do there. This is really good info. -Diana

    As long as I'm focusing on
    making my blocks, I'm totally unanimousl,and that's why I like to hand piece, because, I find it the best stress reliving, It keeps my hands busy, and my thoughts calm, when I get in the rhythm, it is like magic....... well .....when ,
    One with a needle in her hand BETTER pay attention to what she is doing, right.......lol.

    The best projects , by far , are the gifts, I make with love in every stich. .......there is the gift of giving, I honestly can't put into words, but , when I get down , I seek out someone to lift up......Im serious when I tell you, you can't get this feeling any other way, it is the best medicine, ever. I have had trouble Piecing (hands have arthritis ) and I can tell my nerves need, some sew time....Accupucter next week, then hopefully I can get in a lil sew therapy.......��

    All of us quilters new this already didn't we? When I'm working on a quilt I lose track of time. It also relaxes and energizes me at the same time.
